Video: Rooney stars in spoof James Bond trailer

Is a film career around the corner for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney?

That’s the question on everybody’s lips after the Huffington Post UK Comedy made a spoof video with the England international striker staring as James Bond in a trailer for Skyfall.

Daniel Craig is the star of the soon-to-be released 007 film, which gets the world premier treatment at the Royal Albert Hall in London tonight.

However, the Liverpool fan will have to look out for a secret agent with Everton in his blood, as a super-imposed Rooney slides under tables and delivers some classic Bond punishment in this release.

With clips featuring Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra, as well as Judi Dench in her role as ‘M’, the video really does go above and beyond the usual comedy snippets that often come from such big cinema releases.

Whether audiences would accept the Red Devils hitman as James Bond number seven on the silver screen is up for debate, but Vinnie Jones, David Beckham and Stan Collymore have all shown with varying degrees of success that the movie business could come after football.

Judging by some of the footage taken from previous adverts, it might not be the business for Rooney, however. Sir Alex Ferguson will be urging his star to stick to the day job.

Watch the video here, and leave us your thoughts on Wayne Rooney becoming the new Bond…if the video does not play - watch it here on the HuffPost.
